If you want a Wii U you'd better pre-order it ASAP as they're pretty much sold out everywhere already. Especially the Black Deluxe Set for $349. You might be able to find a White Basic Set for $299.

At least there's a PC Option. Wii is in the Thread Title but isn't an option.

You got some use out of that one. I have no idea what the cost is to fix them now. I'm sure you can find some cheap used ones out there.

It boggles my mind that Xbox and PS3 have been out for so long. We are nearing 10 years.

I'm not sure what he would need a modded xbox controller for to play minecraft with.

But, it looks like it uses rapid fire to mine..

something like that could work. Though, I'd like to mention that if microsoft catches him with the controller mod, they could potentially ban his console. That makes it so he can't get online with it anymore.

You can pin some arcade/downloaded games or stuff on your main page on the dashboard for quick access.

Interesting. I didn't realize they were "illegal". How do I explain this to a 7 year old who wants Santa to bring him one?

Why does Sony not update their store any time a game updates?

I am tired of downloading a 5 gig game and having to download the updated version when I launch it

How do I know if a game in the PSN store can be played on the PS3? For example, can all PSP games be played on a PS3? I was interested in downloading "Final Fantasy IV: The Complete Collection" but I don't own a PSP so it's a waste to buy it if I can't play it on the PS3.

I believe it's only if it's labeled PSP/PS3

As someone that has owned every copy of FF4 released in the US, the PSP version kills all the others. It would be worth it to scout out craigslist or ebay and pick up a PSP on the cheap just to play it

When I turn on my Xbox, it usually automatically signs me in on XBOX Live or if I have a slow connection, it'll sign me into my profile, but offline. But there are times when it won't go directly to the dashboard. It'll go to the "Choose your profile" page instead. What is causing that?

PS3 neck and neck with Xbox 360 at 70 million consoles sold worldwide

Quote:
Sony has announced that 70 million PlayStation 3 consoles have been sold worldwide. That more or less exactly matches the figure set by Microsoft's Xbox 360, which the company revealed to have hit the 70 million milestone in its Q1 2013 financial report last month. It's quite the achievement for Sony to be in the race at this point; after Microsoft's one-year head start, the PS3 launch in 2006 was widely considered a disappointment thanks to a high sticker price, lack of quality games, and mediocre online service. Sony has certainly turned things around since, but it'll be hoping for lightning to strike twice with its PlayStation Vita — sales figures out of Japan this week were the worst yet for the handheld, with the Nintendo 3DS outselling it 47-to-1.

That's impressive given that the 360 had a year head start and that a lot of people had to buy replacment 360's due to their low quality.

Has the Wii hit 100 Million units sold yet?

I bought 2 Xbox 360's from 2006 to 2007. one ROD and one AV issue.

I bought 1 Ps3 in 2007. going strong

I bought a wii in 2007, collecting dust upstairs. haven't touched it in a year.

Sales figures can be misleading.
